Besides eating lots of food and drinking lots of wine, there’s so much more to do at Taste of Cayman! Take silly pics of yourself and your family and friends in the Picture This photo booth; visit the Flava seating area and get a recipe booklet plus enter to win a trip to a food festival in London; collect some spices from the McCormick seating area; win a spot prize in the Scotiabank seating area, learn how to make a new dish in the demo kitchen, watch the bartenders mix it up in the Cayman Rum Challenge; ooh and aah at the spectacular fireworks and dance the night away to Swanky Kitchen Band and ABBA Mania! Come for the food but stay for the party!

Cayman’s Favourite Restaurant? YOU Choose!

Every year at Taste of Cayman, each attendee has the chance to make his or her voice heard as the participating restaurants vie for the prestigious title of ‘Cayman’s Favourite Restaurant!’

Last year, Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink was voted Cayman’s favourite, collecting the most votes from festival attendees. Will they take the title again with their lionfish escabeche sliders, popcorn ice cream and Snickers candy bars this year? You decide!

 Meet Our Chefs: Raymond Jackson (Al La Kebab)

Al La Kebab is  a favourite with both locals and tourists. Serving up healthy and fast Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food along with friendly service, Al La Kebab has been around since 2002. It doesn’t hurt that the joint is open into the wee hours of the morning either!

For catering of weddings, corporate events and private parties or anything else that has to do with Cayman food, there’s a sister company, Dine by Design too!
